The Lox came up at a time when Diddy’s Bad Boy Records was becoming a hip-hop powerhouse, following the success of artists like Notorious B.I.G. and Craig Mack.

During a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Sway In The Morning, members Sheek Louch, Jadakiss and Styles P recalled the evening Biggie was gunned down during a music industry party in Los Angeles — his first visit out West.

“If it was, it probably was when Big died,” Sheek said. “For me, that was the most. We didn’t know where hip-hop was going at the time… Puff was talking about quitting and we just got to that label.

“That was our first time over in Cali when that happened to Big,” Jadakiss added. “That was our very first time touching the West. So, we was like shell-shocked over that sh** … We was at the party. We was there and all that sh**. That sh** was crazy.”

Later during the interview, The Lox talked about their longevity in the game and their lyrical prowess.

The Lox recently dropped a new project, The Trinity EP, consisting of four-tracks. It serves as a precursor to the group’s upcoming studio album, We Are The Streets 2. Get it now at iTunes.
